This is a portion of C.H. Spurgeon's devotion for New Year's Eve in his book "Evening and Morning."

"The harvest is past, the summer is ended and we are not saved (Jeremiah 8 -20).

"Not saved. Dear reader, is this your mournful plight? Warned of the judgment to come, bidden to escape for your life and yet at this moment not saved.

"You know the way of salvation, you read it in the Bible, you hear it from the pulpit, it is explained to you by friends and yet you neglect it, and therefore are not saved. You will be without excuse when the Lord shall judge the quick and dead.

"The Holy Spirit has given more or less of blessing upon the word which has been preached to your hearing, and times of refreshing have come from the divine presence, and yet you are without Christ.

"All these hopeful seasons have come and gone, your summer and your harvest have past, yet you are not saved. Years have followed one another into eternity, and your last year will soon be here, youth has gone, manhood is going and yet you are not saved.

"Let me ask you, will you ever be saved? Is there any likelihood of it? Already, the most propitious seasons have left you unsaved; will other occasions alter your condition?

"Means have failed with you, the best of means, used perseveringly and with the utmost affection, what more can be done for you? Affliction and prosperity have alike failed to impress you, tears and prayers have been wasted on your barren heart. Is it not more than likely that you will abide as you are till death forever bars the door of hope?

"Oh bethink you of what that hell is, and of the dread probability that you will so on be cast into it. Oh be wise, be wise in time, and ere another year begins, believe in Jesus, who is able to save to the uttermost.

"Consecrate these last hours to lonely thought, and if deep repentance is bred in you, it will be well, and if it leads to a humble faith in Jesus, it will be best of all."

    The bible (Which is the word of God) says: "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

    The things of God are spiritually discerned, and the things of God are revealed by God and by no other way! No one can come to me except the father who sent me draw him! You did NOT choose me, but I choose you!

    If you are saved you will raise up and be caught up in heaven!

    The gifts and the calling of God are without repentance! God does not change his mind!

    The only thing we humans contribute to our salvation is our SIN! The bible says, without me you can do NOTHING!

It doesn't really work Shane's way, either. God needs superstitious humans to exist; without ignorance, God is nothing.
